Bar Cart.........

So I have wanted one of these bad boys for awhile!  Just couldn't find one I was willing to spend mega bucks on, to go on my deck! Well much to my surprise my lovely neighbors had one in their yard in the trash!!! Carson and I snatched that bad boy up!!! Now I have plans to spray it with a fresh coat of gold, but what the hell do I put on it?? (it's going to be outside in the weather)?

Here are a few of my favorite bar carts!


Happy Friday loves!!! We have plans to grill out tonight, beach all day tomorrow, and a fun neighborhood Easter egg hunt Sunday!!!! Should be a great one!

Our weekend............

Another beautiful perfect weekend with my boys!

Todd came home early on Friday which is always a great start! We ordered pizza and ate it on the deck ;)

Then on Saturday we headed to Kiawah with some of our friends, and seriously the weather could not have been more perfect!

After we decided to head to fresh fields for a little shopping! It is seriously the cutest little village in the world, with some of the best shops around!

Daddy bought baby girl her first piece of Lilly Pulitzer, and we let Carson pick it out :)

My boys have good taste!

Then Sunday we just relaxed in the back yard all day! Carson caught lizards and kept putting the poor things in his new water table! That kid is always cracking me up!!!!

Weekend Recap.......

So this past weekend will go down in history as one of the BEST weekends we have had! Locking it away in my memory forever!

Maybe I am being overly emotional 34 weeks preggo, but it was magical! Saturday I woke up and the boys had watered all my plants and were playing in the backyard! We packed up the car and decided to head to Kiawah for the day! It was beyond beautiful outside, and to me Kiawah is the most beautiful beach ever! Carson was in heaven from the time his little feet hit the sand! Seriously he was all smiles all day! He was so content and happy just digging in the sand, chasing the birds, and just barley letting his feet touch the water ;)  He even looked as us at one point and said" I love it here, it feels like my birthday"!



Note I did get burned like crazy, and next time I wearing a one piece ;)

After a perfect beach day we headed home quickly showered and dressed! We had a babysitter for the night! So we were headed out for a date at Blossom and then my girl Chassitys 30th :) It really was such a great day and night!!!!


Sunday did not disappoint either!

We went to church, brunch, and did a little shopping!! We also made our first College of Charleston baseball game!

Slave Driver.......

That is what my husband likes to jokingly call me. In his defense I do always have him a project to do come the weekend! I just really like things to look good and be complete, you know what I am talking about right? Maybe I am a little more in "get it done" mode since baby girl will be here in 7 short weeks!

Anywho our yard is complete, hanging baskets are hung, and the garden is planted!






This is just a small picture of the garden, I couldn't get it all in on my phone!
This year we planted strawberries, bell peppers, banana peppers, mint, basil, oregano, and cucumbers ;)

A recipe.......


I am not the biggest fan of cooking big meals! I like simple, and I like my kid to eat what we are eating! So last week I shopped the house and whipped up a pretty darn good meal! Carson ate every bite which really did make this mommy so happy!!!

The Chicken is this recipe 

Ingredients:

2 cups (4 oz.) FRENCH'S® Original or Cheddar French Fried Onions
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
4 (5 oz.) boneless skinless chicken breasts
egg, beaten

Directions:

Place French Fried Onions and flour into plastic bag. Lightly crush with hands or with rolling pin. Transfer to pie plate or waxed paper.
Dip chicken into egg; then coat with onion crumbs, pressing firmly to adhere. Place chicken on baking sheet.
Bake at 400°F for 20 min. or until no longer pink in center.

The Green beans straight out of the can with a little butter, and the secret....... a packet of splenda!  Gives them just a touch of sweetness and Carson eats them up!

The potatoes are equally as easy slice very thin, layer with butter, salt, and pepper! Cook those bad boys on 400 for about and hour mmmm taste like potato chips ;)
